First-world problem alert:
My freelance web agency has so much work right now, I’m sort of reeling trying to determine the best way to manage it all. I’ll have to bring all of my timeboxing and lifehacking skills to bear in order to avoid feeling like a trainwreck by Friday.
It’s a good problem to have right now with my business, but…boy oh boy do I have my work cut out for me! 🤪 Wish me luck…
My initial thought was that I stopped reading magazines years ago and that I wouldn’t read digital magazines. Strangely, that part is still right for me. If Apple News+ was a collection of magazines that I could download and read, I probably wouldn’t bother with it beyond the free trial….And this is where Apple News+ surprised me a bit.
The main page of Apple News+ is set up just like the free version of Apple News is on the iPhone. There is a collection of stories in a variety of topic areas that you can choose to read.
As I began reading, I noticed that very few of the stories were from the same magazine. Instead, I was reading stories that interested me, not magazines that interested me. That’s a huge distinction.
My life has been turned upside down in ways both unexpected and thrilling. Here's a sneak peak of what this means for the future of JaredWhite.com.
Google: We’re the king of services!

I did something totally stupid…I accidentally erased my iMac hard drive which had a full edit of this video. Luckily I recovered the raw footage, so this is my SECOND attempt at putting a vlog episode together. I visited Bothell, WA — the place my mom wrote a piece of Celtic music for entitled “The Woods of Bothell” — as well as the way cool Gasworks Park in Seattle. Stay tuned for Part II of my road trip, coming very soon!
🎶 Listen to The Woods of Bothell:
So much of internet discourse ends up:
I wish more people would instead speak up and say:
(And if you disagree with me, you are, of course, WRONG! 🤣)
Apple has introduced new versions of the iPad Air and the iPad mini, plus it’s removed one of the iPad Pros. This leaves the lineup ranging from $329 to $999 for the just the base models, but it’s also made the buying decision a little more involved. AppleInsider explains how to balance getting the most features for your budget.
Though the beginnings of the Byzantine Empire are unclear, its demise is not. The history of the Eastern Roman Empire, from its foundation in 324 to its conquest in 1453, is one of war, plague, architectural triumphs and fear of God’s wrath.
Well this year is shaping up to be one in which I use a Linux command line more than I have in any other year prior. Largely for practical reasons, yes, but I must admit I’m kind of turning into a Unix nerd and I’m not ashamed to admit it. 🤓
Gitea is a painless self-hosted Git service. It is similar to GitHub, Bitbucket, and Gitlab. The goal of this project is to provide the easiest, fastest, and most painless way of setting up a self-hosted Git service.

This support includes Linux, macOS, and Windows, on architectures like amd64, i386, ARM, PowerPC, and others.
Essays which echo the broader movement of progressive Christian writers and thought leaders—heralding a return to the empire-challenging social justice movement which was the hallmark of Jesus’ ministry and of his disciples.
